Second Child with FPIES - Help!

Lauriep ·
Hi there, My almost 4 year old had classic FPIES to rice and oats. Luckily he just passed Oats in hospital this past month and we will be trialing rice shortly. I also have a 9 month old who recently reacted to Barley - she was fine on it for 6 weeks, i happened to remove it for 3 weeks and then when I reintroduced it she had a classic vomiting reaction 2 hours later. So far she has been fine on a ton of fruits and vegetables as well as peas, chicken, soft cheese and yogurt. I can't get into...

6-month-old recently diagnosed

Jennifer Giambi ·
Hi all! My 6-month-old son Gus was recently diagnosed as FPIES to rice, as well as having a positive IgE reaction to eggs. We are in the process of trialing foods. I was wondering if anyone could help us come up with a food plan of action. His safe foods are below: carrots sweet potatoes apples bananas pears avocado peas Squash - in the process of testing. He loves to eat and we would like to make sure he continues to grow and get all the nutrients he needs. Any help would be great! Edit: He...

I see how old this is, so I was wondering what the result was. Our 1yr old is exhibiting all the same symptoms his older brother (3 yr old) has except we cant even seem to get the younger off breast milk and onto an elemental formula as mom is losing her supply. Thanks, Mark

Hi there, i just noticed this post in my junk box and can see you just sent it so great timing We tried all other grains with my daughter and she never reacted. We have avoided rice because of older brother so still don’t know about that one. She had an accidental exposure to barley this past year and seemed to grow out of it, no symptoms at all. My only advice is to trial foods slowly and keep it a daily exposure for a while (both of my kids reacted when there was a break in exposure, I’ve...

I am new to FPIES. My baby is 7.5 months old and we had an appointment with the Pediatric Gastroenterologist last week. He said that my child's symptoms do sound like FPIES. He, however, did not give us any specific instructions, and told us to keep trying new foods. When I probed him further, he asked me to try a new food for 3 days, give a break for 2-3 days and reintroduce it and give it to him for another 3 days. If he passes this test, the food is safe. After reading your post, I am...

Hi Jennifer, My 7 mo daughter was just diagnosed with fpies. We and our Dr's had a suspicion at 5 months. We just started her on Apples this week and then going to Bananas. We are going to try the foods that are not listed as been common triggers and then going from there. We have only had a official diagnoses for 6 days now so we are just building our food plan. I am looking forward to what others say they are doing so we have a better understanding.

Hi, Good luck with food trialing! My 3-year-old son has FPIES (no luck with growing out of it yet- we just failed a retrial). He also ate a ton of avocado when he was younger (it is still a safe food for us). Squash is a common trigger- but since your son already passed sweet potatoes and peas (also common triggers)- he may be fine. Not listed on every site- but bananas are also a common trigger according to our dietician (I found that out after my son had a severe reaction). But, every...
